Maureen F. (Kelley) Bruce of Belmont Oct 31, 2021. Beloved mother of James W. Bruce and his wife Jessica of Hopkinton. Cherished Nana of Alexis and Nathan Bruce.  Loving sister of Priscilla Beadle of Hull, Marilyn MacDonnell of Marlborough, Gail McDonald and her husband Bill of Maynard and Nancy Shea and her husband Kevin of Bolton. Also survived by many nieces and nephews. 

Maureen’s fondest times were spent on summer days in Hull, surrounded by her family, friends, and neighbors. She enjoyed traveling the world, including trips to Europe, Asia, Alaska, and Hawaii.  Maureen loved spoiling her grandchildren, Alexis and Nathan, with trips to Disney World, Hilton Head, and many other spots. She could always be seen and heard at their sporting events as their number one fan.

After spending many years working at Honeywell, Maureen earned her Master’s degree from Lesley College. She went on to work at Bridge Over Troubled Waters and then taught at St. Patrick’s in Roxbury.  After retiring, her generosity continued as she volunteered in their library for many years. 

Maureen modeled generosity, compassion, and kindness in every way. She was loving, forever grateful, and felt blessed for what she had in her life. Her outgoing and vibrant personality drew you in. She will be missed deeply by her family, her dear friends, and all who knew her.
